Int. Congr. Ser. 1288, 526–8. Multiplexing autosomal and Y-STRs loci as a powerful tool for solving old and new criminal cases. 2006

Pizzamiglio, M., Marino, A., Stabile, M. and Garofano, L.

Notes: The authors reported a partial DNA match from evidence from two robberies in Northern Italy. DNA profiles were generated with the PowerPlex® 16 System and the AmpFlSTR® Identifiler® kit, and alleles at 12 STR loci were identical. Based on the high number of matching alleles, the authors hypothesized that the two DNA donors were of the same parental lineage and generated Y-STR haplotypes, which were found to be identical. Based on the results of database searches, the authors concluded that if the number of autosomal loci with common alleles is greater than nine but not all of the loci match, there is a high chance that the DNA donors are of the same parental lineage.

J. Forensic Sci. 51, 740–7. Rapid and high-throughput forensic short tandem repeat typing using a 96-lane microfabricated capillary array electrophoresis microdevice. 2006

Yeung, S.H., Greenspoon, S.A., McGuckian, A., Crouse, C.A., Emrich, C.A., Ban, J. and Mathies, R.A.

Notes: The authors evaluated a 96-channel microfabricated capillary array electrophoresis (µCAE) device for forensic STR typing using the PowerPlex® 16 System and the AmpFlSTR® Profiler Plus® kit. DNA was isolated from one semen (sperm and nonsperm fractions), nine saliva, four blood and two mixed blood stains using either organic extraction or the DNA IQ™ System, then .5–1.0 ng was amplified using the PowerPlex® 16 System and the AmpFlSTR® Profiler Plus® kit according to the manufacturer's instructions. Amplified products were analyzed initially using an ABI PRISM® 310 or Hitachi FMBIO® II instrument, then using the µCAE device. All 48 samples, as well as all minor alleles in 3:1 mixture samples, were accurately typed using the µCAE device. (3772)

Int. Congr. Ser. 1288, 271–3. The Amelogenin locus displays a high frequency of X homologue failures in São Tomé Island (West Africa). 2006

Alves, C., Coelho, M., Rocha, J. and Amorim, A.

Notes: The authors generated DNA profiles for 503 unrelated individuals from São Tomé island using the PowerPlex® 16 System and identified 10 males that presented with only the Y chromosomal Amelogenin amplification product. These individuals were further typed using AmpFlSTR® Identifiler® kit (Applied Biosystems) and the Y-Plex 12 (Reliagene), and only the Y-Plex 12 kit amplified the X-chromosomal Amelogenin product. DNA sequencing revealed a C to T transition within the PowerPlex® 16 forward primer-binding site. (3868)

J. Forensic Sci. 51, 351–356. The application of miniplex primer sets in the analysis of degraded DNA from human skeletal remains. 2006

Opel, K.L., Chung, D.T., Drábek, J., Tatarek, N.E., Jantz, L.M. and McCord, B.R.

Notes: The authors developed a new set of miniplex primers for DNA typing of degraded DNA from human skeletal remains. The miniplex primers produced smaller amplicons (50–280 base pairs) than standard STR systems. The DNA-typing results obtained with the miniplex primers were compared to results obtained with the PowerPlex® 16 System. The authors determined that larger loci failed to amplify when using degraded DNA and that the degradation cut-off length of template fragments occurred predominantly at 200bp and is not kit-dependent.

Legal Med. (Tokyo) 7, 314–318. DNA typing from skeletal remains following an explosion in a military fort--first experience in Ecuador (South-America). 2005

González-Andrade, F. and Sánchez, D.

Notes: On November 20, 2002, an explosion in a munitions facility left 7 people dead, 100 injured and 5 missing. The authors used DNA typing to identify 2 tissue samples and 19 bone samples. These samples, as well as reference samples from relatives of the missing persons, were analyzed using the PowerPlex® 16 System. DNA was extracted using phenol:chloroform:isoamyl alcohol extraction and concentrated, then amplified using 28–30 cycles. For bone samples, the cycle number was increased to 35. The success rate was 90% (19 of 21 samples identified; 2 of 21 samples had a high degree of contamination and could not be identified). (3819)

Croat. Med. J. 46, 530–539. Twelve-year experience in identification of skeletal remains from mass graves. 2005

Andelinovic, S., Sutlovic, D., Erceg Ivkosic, I., Skaro, V., Ivkosic, A., Paic, F., Rezic, B., Definis-Gojanovic, M. and Primorac D.

Notes: These authors used DNA typing to identify human skeletal remains found in mass graves. DNA was isolated using standard phenol/chloroform extraction, the DNA IQ™ System or other methods. A modified DNA IQ™ System protocol was developed using 2g of pulverized bone. DNA was quantitated using the AluQuant® Human DNA Quantitation System or Quanti-Blot™ Human DNA quantitation kit. DNA typing was performed using several STR amplification kits, including the PowerPlex® 16 System. In some cases mitochondrial DNA testing was necessary due to the degree of nuclear DNA degradation. Of the 481 samples, 385 were amplified successfully and 109 sets of remains were identified. (3640)

Int. Congr. Ser. 1261, 160–2. Extended polymorphism at STR-locus D5S818. 2004

Dülmer, M., Henke, L., Baur, M., Fimmers, R., Pick, E. and Henke, J.

Notes: When using the PowerPlex® 16 System for routine paternity casework, the authors observed two single parental exclusions at D5S818 due to reverse homozygosity. To explore this further, they typed 2514 persons who were homozygous at the locus D5S818 and their 1304 children using a singleplex with two different primer pairs and the AmpFlSTR® Identifiler®, Profiler Plus™ and Profiler 1 kits. The authors identified three one-base-pair substitutions, one of which was within the primer-binding site for the PowerPlex® 16 System D5S818 primer. All persons who showed this substitution within the primer-binding site, which the authors designated the *10 variant 4 allele, were of German origin. (3863)

Int. Congr. Ser. 1239, 609–11. Evaluation of Powerplex™ 16 for typing of degraded DNA samples. 2003

Glock, B., Reisacher, R.B.K.. Rennhofer, S.O., Tröscher, D., Dauber, E.M. and Mayr, W.R.

Notes: The authors evaluated the ability of the PowerPlex® 16 System to amplify degraded DNA samples and compared the results with those obtained using the AmpFlSTR® SGM Plus® kit. They amplified DNA from six whole blood samples that had been stored at 4°C or room temperature for 20 days, DNA isolated from six pairs of archived whole blood samples, and from corresponding plasma samples that had been stored below –20°C for 1–3 years and were assumed to be degraded. Amplifications were assembled and performed using protocols optimized in their laboratory. For the whole blood and plasma samples stored below –20°C, the PowerPlex® 16 System gave eight full profiles and the SGM Plus® kit gave six full profiles. No differences were observed between the two kits with DNA extracts stored at 4°C or room temperature. As expected, the frequency of allele dropout increased as the amplified fragment length increased. (3876)

Int. Congr. Ser. 1239, 673–6. Evaluation of “in house” criteria for PCR-based analysis in immigration casework. 2003

van Eede, P.H., Keller, S. and de Lange, G.G.

Notes: The authors evaluated criteria for using STR analysis to resolve immigration cases by examining 156 one-parent child combinations and 105 two-parent child combinations from 28 families. STR analyses were performed in duplicate using the SMG Plus® kit and a combination of CTTv and FFFL Multiplexes. The authors concluded that the combination of these kits, which analyze a total of 21 STR loci, can be used to successfully resolve immigration casework. However, in 9% of the one-parent cases their criteria of a parental index of 1.000 or more was not met. Additional testing using the PowerPlex® 16 System reduced this from 9% to 1 out of 156 indices.
